The New Rural Economy: Discussion
AbstractThe papers in this session examined the extent to which rural areas in the United States have participated in the new economy by producing or using electronic technologies. The first paper described counties that have attracted high technology firms. The second measured adoption of advanced technologies by small manufacturers. The third compared metro and Nonmetro deployment of digital telecommunications infrastructure. The evidence suggests that distance may still matter. Rural areas remain disadvantaged. Alternatively, the real culprit is low population density rather than remoteness.
